Let's talk about the state of your skin. Does it feel itchy? Or maybe your skin is feeling a little tight and dehydrated? It may be that your skin's barrier is compromised. We have private label skincare products and ingredients that can help with all that and more.
Our skin barrier is the uppermost layer of the skin, and its function is to protect the body from enhanced loss of water and external threats such as chemicals. Once your skin barrier is damaged, your skin loses water very quickly, and you often experience a dehydrated sensation. You might also notice that if the products you've been using for a while start to make your skin feel more sensitive and irritated, your skin barrier may be compromised. There are many reasons why your skin barrier might be damaged. Harsh cleansers, over washing the skin, over-exfoliating, overdoing it on skincare products, stress, and hormonal changes can all weaken the skin barrier. Seriously, less is more when trying to restore your skin barrier!
A popular ingredient at Rainshadow Labs is botanical hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid deeply hydrates the outer skin barrier and is suitable for all skin types. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that naturally occurs in our skin. It's an essential molecule involved in skin moisture because it absorbs up to 1,000 its weight in water. Think of hyaluronic acid like a sponge on your skin that holds on to moisture and keeps your face looking plump and dewy.
Organic aloe is another skincare ingredient that never seems to fail our skin. It's a gentle, light, and all-in-one gel that soothes and brings the skin back to a state of balance. Rainshadow Lab's private label skincare manufacturer's resident esthetician explains how botanical actives such as panthenol, hyaluronic acid, and aloe are the perfect blend to promote a better feeling skin barrier: "These plant-based actives work seamlessly together to deeply hydrate the skin barrier." Our private label skincare line, Hydro Plus, contains botanical ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, panthenol, and organic aloe to make the skin look plump and hydrate the skin.
If you are ready to reset your skin barrier, our resident esthetician suggests considering each product you are using in your current skincare routine. Maybe it's too many actives, a harsh cleanser, or an overload of toxic ingredients. Clean up your regimen and start incorporating more botanical and soothing feeling products instead. Your local esthetician will also be able to walk you through and guide you through the process.
